The Trans Tasman is for athletes in the U11 and U12 age groups, from both NSW and Auckland. Every second year, a team from NSW, boys and girls in both the U11 and U12 age groups, travel to Auckland for the Trans Tasman Tour. On alternate years, a team from Auckland travel to Sydney. The Trans Tasman Tour usually takes place over 10 days, where children get the opportunity to meet with people of another country and learn about their customs, as well as take part in several athletic competitions, culminating in the Trans Tasman Challenge. The events offered are 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, High Jump, Long Jump, Shot Put and Discus. Click here for information on the 2018 Trans Tasman Tour being held from 4th to 16th January 2018.
